RTA launches Dubai Metro express service

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the launch of Dubai Metro's express service, with two trains rolling out on the Red Line from each direction, Gulf News has reported. The four express trains stop at only 13 out of 27 red line stations, cutting down the total journey time in each direction by 10 minutes and aims to reduce the peak hour rush. The new service will see two trains each starting from Rashidiya and Jebel Ali at 5:30am and 5:40am respectively, ahead of the normal service which begins at 5:50am. The RTA said it will conduct a survey on the new service during the trial period to get feedback from commuters.
